Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Authors I Want To Meet

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

There are so many authors I want to meet, and I have yet to meet any of them. I live too far away to go to signings, and they don't travel to Norway either (which is completely understandable)

J.K. Rowling - This is an obvious one, being the Harry Potter nerd I am. She has written the most amazing books, and her mind must be brilliant. To even just say a quick "Hello" to her, would be a dream.

John Green - Again, an obvious one for me. I really like his books, and I follow him on tumblr and on youtube. He seems like a really funny person, and just talking to him, and hearing his thoughts about random stuff would be fun.

John Steinbeck - His writing is fantastic, and that's reason enough for me. I don't really know if this list is only supposed to consist of living people, but I still want to meet him.

George Orwell - Same as above.

Sarah J. Maas - I've seen her on some videos and follow her on twitter, and she just seems really funny.

J. R. R. Tolkien - An amazing author and he certainly had an amazing mind as well.

William Shakespeare - Come on, who wouldn't want to meet Shakespeare?

Ransom Riggs - I love his books, and it would be great to hear how he develops his stories based on old pictures he finds.

Sarah Dessen - Her books are so captivating and wonderful, so I can only imagine how she is in person.

Rick Riordan - How amazing would be to to talk about greek and roman mythology with him? Imagine all the things he know about it, and how he has envisioned the gods.

Which authors do you want to meet?


  1. I have Seen Sarah J. Maas on a lot of lists, I need to check her out! We have Rowling and Riordan in common. And I almost put John Green, too.


    1. You should check her out! I really like her books, the writing style is perfect (for meg) and the characters are really developed.
      I saw that you have Rainbow Rowell and Oscar Wilde, I wanted them on my list as well. It's too hard to only choose 10, when there are so many amazing authors with amazing minds out there!

  2. JK Rowling, Sarah J Maas and Rick Riordan were all on my list as well.

  3. I never thought about adding/listing deceased authors to my TTT post this week!! I'd love to meet John Steinbeck if he were still living. He's one of my favorite authors. I did happen to meet his son, Thomas Steinbeck, in Santa Barbara, California twice at two different author signings which was cool. Thomas Steinbeck was very personable and spent time with each person talking to them while signing copies of his novels.
